I need to alias an NT group as dbo on SQL Server 2000 SP3.
The group name has spaces in it. When I run
sp_addalias 'CUFLA\IS Domain Analyst', 'dbo'
I get "Windows NT user or group 'CUFLA\IS Domain Analyst'
not found. Check the name again.
Yet I copied the name from running sp_helplogins. Ive
tried quotes, brackets ......
